Class 101 Launches High School Scholarship Program
September 20, 2018 // Franchising.com // The national college planning franchise Class 101 has announced a new scholarship program for exceptional high school students, with an emphasis on community service.
The program was announced at the company’s fifth annual conference in Orlando.
Two national winners will be announced as recipients of the new community-service-oriented scholarship available for any high school student. Criteria will be based on 25 percent academics, 25 percent leadership skills, and 50 percent making a difference in their community, said Class 101 CEO and Founder Tom Pabin.
The scholarship program was one of a number of new initiatives announced at the meeting.
“Our annual conference continues to get bigger and better,” he said. “In addition to the franchise-wide scholarship program we announced new initiatives to strengthen brand awareness and franchisee support, a new client management system and an ACT and SAT online platform.”
Class 101 helps high school students get into better colleges and qualify for higher amounts of scholarships and financial aid by meeting one-on-one with students once a month for hour-long sessions throughout the year.
“Our college planning experts guide students as they draft a high-performance resume and powerful essays, visit schools, complete applications ahead of schedule and navigate the scholarship and financial aid processes,” said Pabin. “The results are phenomenal. Class 101 students apply to 8 schools on average and receive more than $200,000 in scholarships and aid, much more than the average U.S. high school student.
